between romney care and obama care and didn't say anything about helping the uninsured. how do you respond to that? is it time for romney to give more specifics? is he having a problem with that? >> easy to criticize both of them for not giving enough specifics. romney has a 59-point economic plan that most people have never looked at. i would say that is probably too specific. i think mitt romney should focus on saying things like, mr. president, we are, you seem to have a problem with profits, which my company made. but most americans have a problem with deficits, which you've rung up four consecutive trillion dollar deficits. they both have a ltle problem with details. but there is a big, i would strike a big contrast if i was mitt romney. i would put a working state on one side and a welfare state on the other side and i would say america would be much, much better if dollars were earned instead of dollars awarded. it is time to stop rewarding our friends and punishing our enemies and having the government treat every american the same, which is a foundational principal of the rule of
notably, health care. >> if obama care is repealed, how would you replace it? >> actually, it's a lengthy description but number one, pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. >> pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. keeping them honest, that assurance is misleading and a short time later, a top campaign adviser had to clarify what his boss actually meant. under mr. romney's plan, he said, pre-existing conditions would only be covered for people who already have insurance to begin with, but are changing jobs and therefore, health insurance plans. that's not who most people think of when it comes to pre-existing conditions. ironically, the health care reform law mitt romney signed as governor and remains in effect today in massachusetts does mandate coverage for anyone with pre-existing conditions, whether they already have health insurance or not. a bit later in the program, we will talk about one of the few moments that mr. romney failed to strike a tone of moderation. it concerns a great big yellow bird. that makes it on our "ridiculist" tonight. a good friend of h
about obama care. he smoothly went into the points. he gave real smiles, but most of the smiles were in irritation to things he thought romney were saying that were absolutely ridiculous, like you have no idea how this job it was the smile he was giving romney. >> eventually it ended. >> yes. >> let's talk about the hugs and the handshakes at the end. what did you see there? >> yes. >> remember we talked about obama being in control in the beginning. that's the primacy effect and there's a recency effect at the end of the debate, the last thing a viewer remembers and it's very interesting. romney didn't want to leave the stage. kept staying and stretching it out. >> enjoying the moment. >> he wanted to be the last visual that we had of i won this debate. he just revelled in it and stayed and stayed and stayed, and obama left. >> what about obama's body language at the end though, did he seem -- he seemed to be sort of hunched over a little bit. >> he did. i thought that was very interesting. again, i do feel like he realized he didn't do well, and there was a point, even in his closi

obama, looking to support education, not wanting to see the health care cuts, those policies -- supporting women -- are much more popular than mitt romney's policies. i think that the obama team is going to double down on that over the next few weeks. >> brett, your reaction to that? >> well, you know, on wednesday night, those policies didn't look so good. a debate's about a competition of ideas, especially a political debate. so the president's got to be able to defend those policies if they truly are superior, and on wednesday night he didn't do a very good job of doing that. >> columnist david brooks and peggy noonan praised romney's performance after its missteps in recent weeks. brooks writing this. romney finally emerged from the fog and at long last began the process of offering a more authentic version of himself. noonan wrote this, america got its first sustained look at the good and competent mr. romney. how much do you think does the public support of leading conservaves like the two of them help romney, not just with republicans but with undecided voters? >> i th
. likely voters, who cares about the needs and problems of the people like you was the question. obama 60%. romney 46%. what do you make of those numbers? >> i think we'll have to see how those numbers change over the course of the next few weeks i don't know that those numbers actually reflect what voters got to see. the president has been the president for four years. by and large, mitt romney is still being introduced to the american people because they don't really pay attention until after the conventions. and what happens in the next couple debates, governor romney has to keep performing because surely the president will up his game in the next couple of debates. >> brett o'donnell, appreciate your time. thank you. >> good to be with you. >>> the counterattack jewish and christian leaders are launching in response to this controversial ad. the wheels of progress haven't been very active lately. but because of business people like you, things are beginning to get rolling. and regions is here to help. making it easier with the expertise and service to keep those wheels turning. from b

, energized feeling you need and support breast cancer research and access to care. >> sean: in the obama's pretending that rom no's with lies. among the tall tales he told was that governor romney wants to cut taxes by $5 trillion for the rich, the wealthy, the one-percenters. but his deputy campaign manager who is an expert in not exactly telling the truth admitted other that's not accurate. stephanie cutter amg knowledges that the number is made up. >> his tax cut wouldn't be anywhere near that size. so you are disputing the size of the tax cut? are you disputing how he's going to pay for it? >> he is -- [overlapping dialogue] he has campaigned on lower being tax rates 20% on everybody, including the top 1%. that was one of the main point it's. >> right. you are saying it's a $5 trillion tab, right? >> it's a $5 trillion tab [overlapping dialogue] >> that's our analysis. >> well, okay, stipulated, it won't be near $5 trillion. but it is not going to be the sum of $5 trillion in the loopholes he is going to close? oh, there's nuance to that. reince priebus is here. you know, let's have
. >> it did. >> should the obama campaign be careful not to assume that voters will write romney off as this out-of-touch rich guy? >> he is very, very practiced. this is what i have said for the past couple of weeks. he gets into the debate prep room. he practices and practices. and the answer come across sounding extremely sincere. and the fact is i think that he is perhaps one of the betterer debaters in the republican party today. but when it comes to the facts, when it comes to what he will ultimately do when he governs, come to massachusetts and ask us. he raised fees by a billion dollars. he raised fees on hunters. there is this baby thing going on right now. we've heard him going after big bird. in massachusetts, he made it more expensive to be a baby. he increased the cost of berth certificates. so people need to understand, you can say anything when you're running, and he does, and he will. but how did he govern? in massachusetts he has less than a 30% favorability rating. and president obama is winning by over 20 people. the people in massachusetts have seen how he will go
after the post-pam of uncommitted voters, he went from 30% believing he cared about people to almost 53%, almost doubled it in 90 minutes. that's the movement that we care about. >> sean: listen, nobody's doubting -- i can -- with certainty say obama's going to show up. he's going to be aggressive. he is probably likely to over -- you know, go overboard. >> here's the obama narrative, simply, sean. fiattack governor romney as his campaign has, he drives up his negative and that improves his vote share. what his handlers are saying, you missed opportunity after opportunity to position governor romney as being on the far right. have you to do it in the town hall -- [overlapping dialogue] >> this is where i dissent. this is where i dissent from everyone that this is automatically an obama event. if the romney people -- which they have not-- the romney campaign hasn't got know any better than it has been, which is terrible. romney was really good. but the question they need to push on the president is, he didn't make these charges in the last debate, face it face. if they go after that and
's what democrats like about obama. they couldn't care less he is half black. caller: i have two questions. i wonder if there is a two- tiered justice system in this country. thousands and thousands of dollars while on the terrorist watch list. muslims get prosecuted for the same thing. i have another question. guest: that is not my interest. a're in the middle of presidential election. i just wrote this book. that is outside what i'm interested in. caller: do you think mitt romney will roll back the surveillance state? they are building a computer center in utah that is going to be directed at us. do you think romney will roll back the surveillance state? guest: we are against a fascist state at home because we want to be strong abroad. host: russell in south carolina. caller: good morning. it is always a pleasure to talk to the people at c-span. my comment with ann and the republicans -- it is amazing how she can just ignore the civil-rights movement and the voter rights bill. the voting rights bill actually changed the seven democrats in south carolina, mississippi, alabama, tennessee.
care passed or slowly but surely getting the economy on track. president obama is doing well with the american voter because they don't want to fire the black guy. in a nation where race has been narrowly constructed by society, could there possibly be any truth to will's argument that guilt over firing the first black president is what has him ahead in the polls? back with me are cnbc's dan dicker, mya wiley, raul reyes and the nation's ari burman. all right. so of -- >> i want to -- >> let's admit maybe there's four people voting for the president because of racial guilt. i want to see the ledger between those who are voting for him as opposed to those who refuse to vote for him because he's an african-american. >> the complicated thing about this, so much of how race animosity is expressed right now is implicit by us, meaning people who don't consciously think of themselves as racist, who actually believe in equality and equal opportunity, believe that the civil rights movement was a good thing. and actually don't recognize that part of what's happening subconsciously is t
. i would say the comparison is to bill clinton who also, like obama, had a democrat house and senate when he first came in. he was very liberal. he packed tax hikes. he tried to -- he passed tax hikes. he tried pass national care. america responded by voting in the republican revolution of 1994 and oh boy did we see an about-face with bill clinton. usually when you suffer a devastating defeat like that you see the american people aren't aproving of your policies and that was when clinton really became a d.l.c., democratic leadership council democrat and pretty much just signed everything the newt gingrich congress sent up to him. that's the commi economy that democrats -- that's the economy that democrats are bragging about that obama had to brag about in the debate another night. he can't do anything his four years. he's got to go back to the clinton era. the reason the clinton era office is prosperous it wasn't prosperous the first four years of the clinton administration. oh no. it was when the republican congress came in beginning in january of 1995 passing welfare reform, fantas
